I tried to review the MythUi port ticket in trac -
http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/12 looking for stuff I could help
out with since I've starting learning QT and the MythUi classes - but
the last message seemed to indicate that "Viewscheddiff remains the
only unported main screen" - I mistook that to mean there was little
left to do.

Can you suggest how I can go about determining who's wokring on what
and how to get more involved in this effort?
